Loki is a playable character from Heroes of Mana as well as NPC in Seiken Densetsu 3. He is the father of Duran and also a good friend of King Richard.
In Heroes of ManaEdit
Loki is seen earliest in a dream sequence during Duran's prologue when he falls a sleep on his watch shift at night. Duran dreams about the time he saw his father for the last time when he was little, when Loki departed with Prince Richard and a group of knights for a dragon extermination with Dragon Emperor being the target. He is sure he will win with Richard at his side and asks Duran to take care of his mother and sister when he is gone. Unfortunately Loki never returned, and it fell to Richard to bring home ill news of the fate of his friend to his family. Richard told Loki's wife Simone, that he died saving Richard from the Dragon Emperor by falling down in the bottomless pit with the foe. They couldn't find him even after a week of searching. Whether it was the news of her husband's death or the illness she has been keeping in secret, Simone collapsed and died later bedridden after her sister Stella promised to raise Simone's and Loki's children, Duran and Wendy.
